CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada’s top election official is urging voters to verify their registration status to ensure their eligibility to vote in the Nov. 6 election.

Secretary of State Ross Miller says an investigation by his Elections Integrity Task Force found no widespread evidence that voter registration fraud has occurred in Nevada.

But Miller says there may be isolated incidents where paperwork was destroyed or not submitted for people who registered through a third-party group.

While the deadline to register online or by mail has passed, voters have until Oct. 16 to register or update their information in person at their county election office.

Miller adds that investigations into registration fraud allegations are ongoing, and anyone with evidence that their form was destroyed should contact his office.
